Speaker(s) : Dr Tania Dickinson
The ‘Acomb area’ Treasure find: fragments of an early Anglo-Saxon high-status burial’.
The talk covered the background to the discovery in 2016 of fragments of a seventh-century composite disc brooch and a dozen beads. Dr Dickinson discussed the construction and virtual reconstruction of the brooch and possible explanations for the assemblage’s archaeological and historical context. It is always fascinating to discover what can be established from a very local scale archaeological find.
